High voltage power cables have been installed as part of the $689 million Royal Hobart Hospital (RHH) Redevelopment in Tasmania.

RHH Redevelopment Project Director, Ben Moloney, said works to provide power to K-Block were being conducted by TasNetworks and the managing contractor, John Holland Fairbrother Joint Venture.

“These energy infrastructure works will power up K-Block as well as several other buildings in Hobart’s central business district,” Mr Moloney said.

Mr Moloney said that the managing contractor had provided advice that they intended to close Campbell Street between Liverpool and Collins Streets for two weeks to complete the works.

“The road will be closed to ensure the safety of the public and subcontractors during critical energy infrastructure upgrades.”

Mr Moloney said that the pouring of concrete slabs for level five of K-Block was already completed.

“By the end of the year, the structure for all ten floor slabs and precast façade panels are due for completion and the installation of internal walls substantially progressed,” Mr Moloney said.

The Managing Contractor received permission to temporarily close Campbell Street from the Hobart City Council as the appropriate regulatory authority.
